Mon, Feb 24 8:30am · Cryptogenic Organizing Pneumonia (COP): Any success in treating? in Lung Health

HI y'all. I don't know about this type of pulmonary disease. My disease was BOOP PNEUMONIA. For one thing, Boop is not contagious and the problem is INFLAMMATION! Your lungs on X-ray are white. It's deadly in many ways but mine was caught early or late. Either way I survived. I used Prednisone and it nearly killed me. The drug is our enemy! I'd rather die that take that stuff. I looked on-line and found a book on BOOP and ordered it. Written by a wonderful caring pulmonologist MD. You can use an antibiotic, it'll take longer but it's better and easier on the body than Prednisone. That stuff literally drove me mad. Doctors don't give their kids Prednisone, but give it to us like candy.Grrrr! I used my hospital in Savannah and we have horrible health care in this town. I have silent Celiac Disease and Microscopic Colitis. MC is an autoimmune condition and is INFLAMMATION. I see a trend here. INFLAMMATION is a big problem in our body. It was hell in my life and Prednisone was an awful experience I will never revisit.

Mon, Jan 27 8:31am · GI Disorder and Internal Shaking in Digestive Health

Oh, don't even talk about Beaufort, SC, hospital. I had a diabetic low in Beaufort, and taken to the hospital and treated like an alcoholic. They are beyond bad! I was wearing a Dexcom, information stating I was a diabetic and they did all these tests to pad their wallet. They performed an ethanol test and treated me like an alcoholic.I refused to pay the bill and will never pay it.Do what they may, but they will never see a dime from me. SCAM HOSPITAL!

One more thing y'all. Our gut is our second brain. My troublesome spot is "BRAIN FOG." I had it so bad that I was putting laundry in the fridge, couldn't find things that I laid down, and my brain was crazy. I'm a RN and didn't realize this. I was thinking another autoimmune response disease. My father had the same thing before he passed at age 50. He was a Type 1 diabetic (another autoimmune disease) and I too have Type 1 diabetes. Then his gut started and GI specialists didn't know what to do. They still don't know what to do. I have zero confidence in GI specialists. Medical schools are not teaching something of dire importance – Microscopic Colitis.This is a difficult disease to deal with and people are suffering.

Sat, Jan 25 8:54am · Collagenous Gastritis in Digestive Health

Hi y'all, I was born with silent Celiac Disease. Always been shaky and felt like an inner explosion going off inside my body. I learned to live with it and nobody could help me. I didn't know what was going on after seeing doctor after doctor. I've seen my big bloated stomach in photos as a kid. My Mom was too busy taking care of my sick father. About 15 years ago, I experienced explosive diarrhea and lost tons of weight. I was diagnosed not by a doctor but a support group on line with Microscopic Colitis. I take no drugs. I won't touch Prednisone or steroids. This is maintained by Diet and diet alone. I eat NO carbs, everything is soft, and many things I can't eat. Soy is a big NO NO! Grocery shopping is a chore because I check every ingredient before I buy the item. Food manufacturers are killing us.They've hired big lobby groups to protect them. In my humble opinion, I think they are one of the reasons why we're seeing stomach cancer, pancreatic cancer and other maladies on the rise. Back in the day, we butchered our own animals and we knew what what we ate was pure. We grew our own foods.Wayne Perskey or Tex, made aware of Microscopic Colitis and he's written books and helped us with our diet. I have no confidence with the majority of GI specialists. They don't have a clue. You maintain this autoimmune disease by Diet. You can mail in a simple stool sample to Dr. Fine and you will find your culprits and what not to eat. I take Magnesium because our soil is depleted of nutrients plus I take D3 all for healing. I have a long way to go, but I am a fighter. No drugs, the drug manufacturers think everything is a pill. I can't stomach them. I think they want us sick to get richer and richer. They are not our friends.

If y'all want to know more about our support group, give me a holler. Eating a caveman's diet is not easy…but it's doable.

My only help has been with the Miscroscopic Colitis Support group. Diet is the only answer.

Dec 9, 2019 · Klonopin taper in Depression & Anxiety

Hi @janopal, No, I haven't experienced any hissing sounds in my brain. Without Klonopin, I have tons of electrical activity from the brain to my body..Klonopin calms my nervous system. I get so sick without Klonopin, I feel like I'm having a seizure. Lights on white paper and certain colors drive me into madness. I saw a green metallic car and I had to look away. I started feeling like I was going into seizure mode.

Oct 24, 2019 · Is there anyone dealing with Leaky Gut Syndrome? in Digestive Health

I have Leaky Gut Syndrome, because I have Microscopic Colitis, (MC). My symptoms are Brain Fog, chronic explosive diarrhea at times,muscular pain of the abdomen and fatigue. There is a good site for this if you think you have MC or LC. Seems we all low in Magnesium and Vitamin D. We try to control this monster disease by diet. The less drugs you take the better!
